Samsung WB700

 

The "travel zoom" market - meaning pocket compacts with extended lens reaches beyond, let's now say, 8x or more - has really taken off in recent years, with Panasonic's all-conquering Lumix TZ series, and recent TZ20 iteration, leading the pack....

Expansive focal range in a compact chassis, affordable, easy to use, one touch video recording, HDMI output port, collection of manual shooting settings

Uninspiring black boxy design, no Full HD video

Not quite stunning yet far from terrible, for those point and shooters looking for a big zoom on a £150+ budget, but not a big camera to go with it, the pocket-sized WB700 from Samsung should fit the bill. OK, so not all its specs are high end -...

A compact with an 18x zoom and full manual control

Excellent build quality ; Nice lens ; Lovely colour reproduction ; Sharp focusing

Poor image quality at high sensitvity settings ; Over exposes in complex light ; The miniature mode doesn't impress

Comprehensive manual controls and a generous 18x zoom, but it can't compete for image quality or performance

Samsung WB700

 

The Samsung WB700 is the latest gadget to hit the South Korean company's compact camera range, offering a host of high-end features and a staggering 18x optical zoom. It's not particularly small, but it's much more convenient than taking an SLR and a...

Aside from slightly poor performance in low light levels, the Samsung WB700 is a great all-round camera. Sure, it's not small enough to slip into most pockets, but it's a lot more compact than DSLRs, bridge cameras or Micro Four Thirds cameras, and the...

Samsung WB700

 

A simple, stylish shooter with a colossal 18x zoom and a host of creative filters

Superb build quality and an affordable price are the WB700’s best features. Image quality is average though, but at the online price point of £200, you can’t go far wrong

Samsung WB700 Digital Camera Review

 

Daniel Bell reviews the Samsung WB700, a compact digital camera with an 18x optical zoom lens and 14 megapixel sensor.

ISO 80 - 3200; Full Manual Controls; Smart Filters; Metal, centralised tripod socket

Would benefit from rubber grips to aid handling

Samsung crams an 18x optical zoom lens into the teensy-tiny WB700 and equips it with full manual control.

Samsung WB700 Review

 

In the past, manufacturers that weren't seen as the most popular would generally offer more to entice the consumer to buy their cameras instead of the big names. If the Samsung WB700 is anything to go by, the world's largest electronics company is...

The Samsung WB700 is a very capable camera. It's a good looking unit with a simple to use interface and lots of modes and features to entertain any level of photographer. Entry level users will enjoy the simplicity of the smart auto mode while more...
